Carte Blanche: The Beatles' White Album
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

The Beatles' only double-album, The Beatles (a.k.a. The White Album) is the band's most individualized and stylistically diverse work. Many people argue that The White Album should have been released as a single-album, but no two people seem to agree on which half should be kept and which half should be discarded. In this 2-hour program, three Beatles experts (Candy Leonard, Aaron Krerowicz and Daniel D'Addio) will make the case for why all 30 tracks should be kept, then the audience will be invited to discuss and debate the merits of each song in order to distill the double-album down to a single disc.
